As an Indian Fashion Blogger based in Bengaluru, things can get pretty trying when you are traveling from one location to another. This often leaves me with little time to explore good restaurants in Bangalore as well as pubs known for their great food and music. The increasing traffic makes it difficult for me to access areas that are known for their party destinations.
Watson’s at Sahakarnagar is one of the must-visits for people based in North Bangalore. The cozy ambience and the striking use of colours set Watson’s apart from the many restaurants in Bangalore. I found this place interesting as it saved me a long commute and I could have a fun time in a cozy ambience with great food and drinks!
When I walked into Watson’s Sahakarnagar, I was pleasantly greeted by their friendly staff. The flaming red door opens up to a beautiful setting wherein you’ll find comfortable seating arrangements. There’s a low seating area along with tables and high bar stools, comfy sofas wherein you can just sink in, order your drink, and enjoy the night with your friends.
We loved the emerald green walls and the antique look styled in some areas of the restaurant. It reminded me of the Sherlock Holmes era, where you can visualize the eccentric detective solving a tough case with his friend and guide, Watson. The name, Watson’s, has been selected as one of the founders is a fan of this detective series. I am sure Mr. Sherlock would have loved to grab a bite and a drink with his friend, Watson!
The colourful walls are adorned with beautiful graphic art that is a delight for every person who enjoys a touch of creativity. The cozy ambience has perfect little corners where you can have a quiet chat amidst the crowd while admiring the interiors of this restro-pub.
I personally fell in love with the corner adorned with green leaves and I can’t help but click photographs there. I also loved the brown bricked wall that is tucked away in a corner – perfect for some genuine conversations.
Watson’s in Sahakarnagar is spacious and suitable for family, and friends. What I love is that finally, this area has some good options without the need to travel to other areas that are far away in Bangalore. The wooden furniture, striped sofas, high stools, and brown chairs all add to the quirkiness of the place. They also have a large bar designed using the typical wooden interiors. You’ll find a stock of colourful bottles and I had to click some photographs here.
Watson’s Sahakarnagar Menu
The menu at Watson’s Sahakarnagar is filled with a healthy mix of South Indian and North Indian food. We began with the mocktails and this was perfect in the sweltering heat. As I gently downed these mocktails, foot tapping music floated through the air, making me feel like dancing right where I was seated. I loved the watermelon mocktail named as International Velvet. This was fresh, cool, and so calming in the hot Bangalore weather.
Watson’s also offers a yummy Express Lunch for Rs. 199. This is available from Monday – Saturday (12 p.m. – 3 p.m.).

What I’m Wearing:
I’ve picked a Zara dress for my outing at Watson’s. I love the structured look which is loose for the upper half and figure-hugging from the waist onwards. I always manage to sneak the stripe design in most of my outfits. I’ve combined it with pointed heels in flaming red to complement the quirkiness of Watson’s Sahakarnagar.
Stay tuned to my next post where I’ll show another trend you can flaunt for your dinner dates.
